Corrupt Voltaire 9024-m firmware help?

You may have seen all my issues with this switch, but I was unable to access it via the fabric, and I finally got the serial console cable working, it turns out either my serial ports are bad or somebody printed some wrong instructions, but I can get to the console now, but the problem now is the firmware is corrupt and I just get the “ppcboot” prompt and I am wondering how to fix it if possible. I think I can use flint to update firmware, but i’m confused as to the command line on windows or if it’s even possible. Will the firmware contained in the “9024d-m” zip file valid for a 9024m?

**I just recieved the .ibswlrm file, but how do I get that onto the switch from a windows workstation? can I “burn” it via flint?

Hey,

Ill recommend using a program like putty or mobaXterm or any freeware that has CLI interface to connect via the mgmt port.

You can try the user manual:
